We probably won’t be invaded by aliens that are vastly superior to ourselves

Any race that has mastered the ability to travel between solar systems probably isn’t going to pay humanity a second thought. The world would look like an insignificant backwater, lacking anything useful. There’s always a chance that something like a Von Neumann probe could land, replicate and destroy us all for the hell of it, but that’s closer to an act of god than an invasion.

If something looking like a traditional invasion were to come, it would likely be from a nearby planet like Mars from a civilization that had just learned how to travel through space but hadn’t progressed very far passed that. Possibly something like a natural disaster would force them to immigrate to a different biosphere. Or a once advanced civilization in extreme long term decline that requires humans or something from our biosphere.

    Unless they were on a religious mission to purge inferior life forms from the universe. Or convert us to the One True God.
    You’re assuming advanced life-forms will be sane.

    An invasion by advanced aliens is as inconceivable to us as we are to termites. Pray First Contact never happens.
